What’s new

This new release adds a lot of new features:

  • Support for the Oracle database is now available! And this is not part of any “enterprise” offering :-)
  • Warning : Oracle support has forced us to modify a little bit our initial schema. The most important change is the JHI_PERSISTENT_AUDIT_EVENT_DATA table which has been renamed JHI_PERSISTENT_AUDIT_EVT_DATA, as Oracle doesn’t allow long table names
  • We upgraded to the latest Spring Boot version (1.2.4) and the latest AngularJS version (1.4.0), so your projects are always up-to-date!
  • Internationalization is now optional: this is a new generator option, where you can remove all internationalized code
  • Grunt should now run faster, as it doesn’t use the concurrent task anymore. There is a new tip to turn it back on if needed
  • We have a new Romanian translation, so we now support 18 languages!

And as always, you can check all the closed tickets here.

How to upgrade

Update your version of JHipster with:

npm update -g generator-jhipster

And then you can update your project when you run again

yo jhipster

You can also update your entities by running again the entity sub-generator, for example if your entity is named Foo

yo jhipster:entity Foo
